A topic post here asked what do you like candy or cookies? Well that got me to thinking about my early years and my oma (grandma).I was born in Holland and my grandparents lived at the time on the top floor of a house of flats.My oma had a china hutch and to the left side of the hutch is where she kept the cookies and candy locked up.Still does to this day and now the great grand children know the secret.

 Now the key to the door was in a china cup on top of the hutch.Everyone knew where it was even me at a young age.Well one day when l was age three l decided to break into that cupboard.So l dragged a chair from the table to the hutch.It was not far to drag they had a dining room/living room type deal.And up l climbed and yes l got the key.

 I got that cupboard open and l had a feast of all the cookies that were in there.For some reason l left all the hard candy and chocolate alone......I know the shame leaving the chocolate behind what was l thinking?

 Well of course when my oma went into the cupboard later she found all the cookies gone and she knew right away l took them all.

 I would have gotten away with it if it were not for the fact l had a major stomach ache.

I guess if your were to ask me today l still like cookies better and soft almond butter cookies are my favorite.

But during PMS nothing beats a good piece of white or dark chocolate.


That is my oma, my sister ,and my nephew the woman is 90 now and still going strong.
